Forum: GratefulDead Subject: Re: 10-29-1977 Evan's Fieldhouse Dekalb, Illinois...might as well

Oh, I didn't even have to. I very much agree the EYES from that show has a wonderful quality and as you point out a sweet bass run by Phil leading into Dancin'.

One problem i guess i have w/that show--again, the subjective issue you brought up--is that I never cared for the Dead's version of Dancin' matter what the show or that sequence doesn't thrill me as much as it might some others.

and no way would I ever NOT recommend the Swing show...just,as R&B points out about my fave of 10/29, it just doesn't cut it for me as one of the very best of that year, and so...overrated. But ultimately this proves your point about the overrated discussion itself being problematic and confusing. Better to simply point to what we each feel are truly GREAT shows in any given year.

(did I mention I really enjoy the mellow groove of the H>S>F from 2/26/77? :-)
